at the white house, where the study was released just today. jake? >> reporter: that's right, diane. good evening. the white house released today what it called the most comprehensive study by the government on women in almost 50 years. each day, 72 million women in the u.s. get up and either head to work or look for work. they're a group of women who are better educated than ever before. but they still make less than their male counterparts, on average, only 80% of what a man makes. this woman graduated with a masters from columbia and went to work for a magazine in new york city. her male counterpart with the exact same job and only a bachelor's degree was paid $3,000 a year more. >> i felt devalued. i felt like i didn't count. i felt inferior to my colleague. >> reporter: sometimes it's discrimination, but there are other factors, as well, behind pay inequity. >> one reason is they're not going into the kinds of fields that are high income producing. and so the president, since e l early on in the administration, has had an effort to encourage women and girls to go into science and te

tonight. abbie? >> reporter: diane, with radiation still leaking from the reactors in japan, tonight, there's growing concern in california. if that radiation may end up in our milk supply. environmental laboratory in montgomery, alabama. this lab is the front line of defense, where the government's been working around the clock to track radiation levels in milk produced all over the united states. that fresh milk could end up on your table within a few days. the levels of radioactive iodine detected in milk in washington and california so far are minuscule. the government says 5,000 times lower than what the fda considers a public health concern. and iodine breaks down quickly. even if a quart of milk in your refrigerator contain trace amounts, it would deplete by half in just eight days. as the nuclear crisis in japan continues, the epa has also increased radiation monitoring in drinking water, rain and snow. but it's the milk that has people in california concerned today, despite assurances of its safety. >> radiation in the united states does concern me and i would consider cutti
, matt. >> reporter: that's right, diane, and oil prices today closed at their highest level since any time since september 2008, just a little over $104 a barrel. and the experts we spoke to said even they were surprised by how quickly these gas prices followed. and they said the soaring prices are not likely to slow down any time soon. not since hurricane katrina shut down one-third of the nation's refineries has the price of gas shot up this high this fast. almost 20 cents in the last week alone. and rising. the spike especially painful for folks like contractor daniel huff. it now costs him $200 a month more to fuel his pickup than just this past january. and you can't very well drive a hybrid or something. >> no, i can't drive one of those little eco-friendly gocarts. >> reporter: and an even more painful milestone may be around the corner. >> there's a lot of talk about $4 a gallon, maybe by the time we get to memorial day. i wouldn't be surprised to see that happen. >> reporter: last time that happened, june 2008, it contributed to the worst economic nose dive in decades. >> we'
the size of toledo and david muir is there. david? >> reporter: diane, in the sign of how dire it's become the japanese government has reached out to the iaea, the international atomic agency and the u.s. determined here in a desperate race to avoid a catastrophic meltdown. entire families escaped the shadow of the doomed nuclear power reactors are coming here worried they were exposed to radiation. we were given extraordinary access to the test sites where medical teams used megaphones to direct the parents and children where to go. they're using geiggar counters and hand held scanners checking everyone one by one especially the most vulnerable, the children scanning this little girl's hair and there are countless faces here. there are three nuclear reactors at what is called the fukushima daiichi plant. just two days ago an explosion at reactor one released radioactive material into the air and yesterday a second blast at three releasing more and while dramatic these are not the worst case scenarios. tonight there is growing concern over reactor number two becoming dangerously overheated
to confide. diane bliss: friends i'm diane bliss and isn't it wonderful to know that we have to live through these things but we can get to the other side. stay tuned because a lot more valuable information will be coming your way and perhaps this dvd will be something that you would like to have for that pledge at $75 or the book on which this entire wonderful program is based can be yours for a pledge of $90 more on that in just a little bit. but now let me take the opportunity to welcome dr. ann kaiser stearns to public television. dr. stearns, dr. ann kaiser stearns: thank you, thank you so much. diane bliss: thank you for being here with us. dr. ann kaiser stearns: thank you very much, my pleasure. diane bliss: dr. stearns we have the marvelous opportunity to be sharing this information with public television audiences, why after all these years of work have you come to public television? dr. ann kaiser stearns: well i've been a fan of public television for a really long time. if you came to my house in baltimore you would find the do-op tapes, you would find uh, macneil lehrer's briefc
: good evening, diane. that news about the tap water brings a new level of anxiety to this city of 30 million people. today, empty spots on grocery store shelves, where the bottled water used to be. replaced by signs like this. "water all sold out because of news concerning radiation." tokyo's tap water is tainted with a radioactive isotope known to cause thyroid cancer. iodine 131. tests at one of the main water treatment plants showed the level of radioactive iodine at a count of 210. the acceptable limit for adults is 300. for infants? 100. "so, we advise babies in tokyo and surrounding areas not to drink the tap water," a water department official announced. government officials immediately started begging citizens not to hoard bottled water. but people, especially moerls with young children, are scared. "we can't see the radiation," she says. "and we won't know the affects on our children for years." today, we got our first glimpses up close at the efforts to prevent further contamination. these photos, taken by engineers working to fix the troubled reactors, give some sense why

the headline on what he's going to say? >> reporter: good evening, diane. well, president obama tonight according to white house sources is going to try to bring the american people into his decision-making process. this quick decision that he made explaining why the u.s. moved so quickly to stop a potential massacre of libyan civilians and also why the u.s. worked the way it did, to work internationally so as to prevent a -- getting bogged down in yet another war. after ten days of the coalition pounding gadhafi's forces, president obama will tonight take his case to the american people. here's what he said over the weekend. >> when someone like gadhafi threatens a bloodbath that could destabilize an entire region and when the international community is prepared to come together to save many thousands of lives, then it's in our national interest to act. >> reporter: the president will underline that the u.s. will not be sending in ground troops and that nato not the u.s. has assumed command and control responsibilities. but it's unclear if the president will tackle the many difficult q

: good evening, diane. well, president obama is mindful that the american public is weary of war. and that the international community is skeptical of the u.s. attacking yet another muslim country. so, he's done everything he can to make this conflict seem as international as possible. he even mentioned our arab partners in this effort seven times today. president obama today gave moammar gadhafi one last chance. >> moammar gadhafi has a choice. a cease-fire must be implemented immediately. that means all attacks against civilians must stop. >> reporter: gadhafi must pull back his troops, the president said, and allow water, power and humanitarian relief to reach civilians. >> let me be clear. these terms are not negotiable. these terms are not subject to negotiation. >> reporter: the president had been committed to squeezing gadhafi diplomatically, but everything changed on tuesday, as gadhafi's forces pushed to rebel stronghold benghazi. the president told his national security team, "what we're doing isn't stopping him." tuesday night, the president met with defense secretary
miles from shore. >> this morning we're live in japan, with diane sawyer, christiane amanpour and david muir. and we ask the question, is this only the beginning of the devastation? >>> and good morning, america. joining us is "world news" anchor, diane sawyer, is who is there in sendai, japan, where the scope of the destruction is staggering. aftershocks still rocking the region. >> dealing with two crises. humanitarian. and an urgent disaster, to avoid a nuclear emergency. there was a third partial meltdown overnight. 11 injured in the blast. and after american officials detected radiation onboard "the uss ronald reagan," it was moved offshore. and nuclear experts still believe that the chances of a full-scale meltdown are remote. but the chances of a nuclear disaster, even worse than we feared. >> the death toll may top 10,000, with reports of thousands of bodies washing ashore. the disaster has also dealt a powerful blow to japan's economy. their stock market plunged overnight, as the government announced it would pump more than $200 billion into the economy. and we have new picture
. >> reporter: that is right, diane. it is not often bill gates, one of the richest people in the world, inserts himself into one of the hot button issues in american politics. but he is doing that now, voicing radical ideas on how to make schools work and sharp criticism about who is to blame for why they have not. at today's conference, the soft-spoken gates was on the attack over how states are dealing with the crisis in american education. >> the guys at enron never would have done this. i mean, this is so blatant. so extreme. is anyone paying attention? >> reporter: for the past year, gates has been focused on how to make schools and teachers better. and how to pay for it. >> state budgets are a critical topic, because here's where we make the real trade-offs. if we make the wrong choices, education won't be funded the right way. >> reporter: gates has been looking into what makes good teachers good, with the idea of identifying, developing and rewarding teaching excellence. his foundation is currently studying and videotaping teachers in seven urban school districts, including memphis, in
.s. officials who are now helping the japanese. martha? >> reporter: diane, every day, the nuclear monster seems to get more frightening. but there is some hope tonight from that big u.s. push to send in water pumps. this coming after last ditch efforts by the japanese failed. one expert told us it's like using a squirt gun to put out a forest fire. japanese fire trucks using riot control water hoses to tackle red hot nuclear reactors. helicopters swooping overhead, dropping bucket after bucket. every effort falling short. but here is the encouraging news. japanese plant operators have connected a new electric power line to the plant. this entire crisis began when the power was knocked out. if the japanese flip the switch but those critical water pumps to cool the reactors don't work, then it's american pumps to the rescue. the pentagon has shipped high pressure pumps, but no u.s. personnel. once again, the japanese will have workers willing to risk their lives operating them. today, for the first time, a closeup look at how dire things are. you can see reactor three, charred and billowing steam

. but some parents may say, diane, as gates argues, that the stradoff, great teachers, in a larger class, is worth it. >> and he's going to amass the data to show that great teachers, good teachers are the important thing no matter what. >> reporter: and he believes they can teach other teachers to be better. >> all right, ron claiborne, thank you. >>> and now we move onto libya. president obama came out swinging, calling for colonel moammar gadhafi to go. >> let me just be very unambiguous about this. colonel gadhafi needs to step down from power and leave. >> the president also left open the issue of western planes helping enforce a no-fly zone over libya. two reports tonight, in tripoli, lama hasan with the rebel protesters. lama? >> reporter: diane, the opposition here wants the west to enforce a no-fly zone over the libyan skies, to stop gadhafi from using his fighter jets in the struggle for control over the country. we've seen the potential power of gadhafi's aerial bombardment. jets pounding the landscape, dropping bombs around this town, a critical oil part that has fallen under
with martha raddatz on what is happening right now. martha? >> reporter: diane, the no-fly zone is officially in place but only in the eastern part of the country, but that should expand over the coming days as more of gadhafi's air defenses are taken out. in the last 24 hours, at least a dozen cruise missiles have hammered libyan targets, two of them slamming into a command and control facility smack in the middle of one of gadhafi's compounds. since this air assault began, there have been 136 cruise missile strikes. those strikes alone totaling well over $136 million, and more than 50 attacks from warplanes aimed at gadhafi's surface-to-air missile sites and military airfields. three b-2 stealth bombers dropped 45 2,000-pound bombs on the hardened structures that shelter gadhafi's fighter jets. here is what it looked like before and after. some of the structures completely demolished. >> we have not observed libyan military aircraft operating since the beginning of coalition military operations. >> reporter: with the libyan troop advance halted for now and the air defenses significantly deg
and the site is growing rapidly, and, diane, people are obviously taking to twitter and facebook, as well, to search for loved ones. >> that's right. reunions, we hope to see those coming soon. thank you, elizabeth. >>> and, of course, another concern, all day long, focus of growing fear, the 40-year-old nuclear plant damaged by the earthquake, its power knocked out. a crucial cooling system disabled, with pressure building inside the reactor. japan declared a state of emergency at the plant. its first ever. and chris cuomo is here with that. chris? >> reporter: we're getting updates right now, diane, as we're broadcasting. the situation still far from under control. we're hearing radiation levels inside the plant reached as high as 1,000 times the normal level. so, what started as a natural disaster has the potential to become an even more threatening man-made disaster. the fukushima knew clenuclear p plant is one of the largest and oldest in the world. and now, it is in great jeopardy. >> the immediate crisis period is right now, extending over the next five to six hours. but it takes a
and he joins us by phone. hello, george. >> repter: hello, diane. good evening back there and good morning from where we are at. those images in the video you've been talking about that you're seeing back in the states, we're a few hours away from the sendai and fukushima area. while the buildings around here at the airport definitely rattled and rolled a few days ago during the initial quake, at least they're still standing, so people at least have a home or a place to go to. but those in the sendai area, many of them don't have homes anymore. and they're camped out in shelters or wherever they can. you have entire neighborhoods literally washed away and what's left are, as you've seen in the video, pieces of wood, broken concrete, piles of metal. you have many families who haven't seen or heard from loved ones. they don't have if they're alive or dead. japanese families don't know if they have aunts and uncles still alive. we have friends and people in the united states who are wondering about loved ones over here. to even drive up to that area, that's a challenge in itself. many
atlanta. steve, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, diane. we did a little comparison shopping today and at current prices, two gallons of gas is roughly the same cost as this t-bone, the gas it takes to get you to the steak house is now more than the beef. outside chicago, autumn says it's unreal. in the past two weeks she's watched gas jump up 45 cents a gallon and she nearly fell over when it cost her $64 to fill up. today we went with her as she and her children made all of their trips in one drive spending as little time on the road as possible. >> i was really shocked when it didn't stop till 68.04. >> reporter: outside atlanta when they do go shopping mark and lisa mcintire told us they buy much more in bulk and drive to the store slowly to help save on gas. >> you got to drive a little slower sometimes too. >> reporter: really? >> of course. you save. >> reporter: you do this? >> yeah, i do. >> reporter: the average cost is 3.52. just 2.35 of that buys the oil and 35 cents to refining it. 31 cents pays for distribution and marketing and 46 cents goes to uncle sam. we were sur

interview with diane sawyer. >> i think it's moving well. the work that the united states and our allies have been doing to take out the air defense systems will enable the united states to do what we said we would do, which is to fulfill this initial phase and then to transition to the no-fly zone and the work that will be led by our partners. >> reporter: will it be nato? >> nato will be involved. we do have a lot of nato members who are committed to this process and, you know, they want to see command and control that is organized. but we also are integrating others from outside of nato. but i'm very relaxed about it, diane. i think it is -- it's proceeding it's moving forward in the right direction and we will have what we need in the next few days. >> reporter: moammar gadhafi. will this intervention be a success if he's still in power? >> well, i think we have to separate the two sides of the equation, if you will. the united nations security council resolution was very proud, but explicit about what was legally authorized by the international community. and we are 100% committed t
